Gisele Bundchen is praying for her husband (US Presswire).By Josh Katzowitz

It’s great that Tom Brady’s wife, Gisele Bundchen, cares about her husband’s well-being and happiness. And there certainly would be nothing wrong with the model praying for the Patriots quarterback’s safety as he heads into Super Bowl XLVI. And if she wants to ask friends and families to send positive vibes to the heavens as well, I guess that’s fine as well.

But if that email somehow comes out in the public -- and she simply asks her friends and family to pray that the Patriots beat the Giants -- Gisele shouldn’t be surprised if she faces an immediate backlash from at least one New York tabloid.

Oh wait, that’s already happened.

The NY Post has the scoop on the mass email calling the message a “disgustingly sappy email … for her pretty-boy hubby.”

Here’s the text of the note (sic’s and all), obtained by the Post:

“My sweet friends and family, sunday will be a really important day in my husband’s life. He and his team worked so hard to get to this point and now they need us more than ever to send them positive energy so they can fulfill their dream of winning this super bowl . . .

“So I kindly ask all of you to join me on this positive chain and pray for him, so he can feel confident, healthy and strong. Envision him happy and fulfilled experiencing with his team a victory this sunday.

“Thank you for your love and support. Love, G :)”

After the newspaper touched base with her via email, Bundchen said: “I am surprised that you received this email; it was a private note only sent to close friends and family.”

Again, nothing wrong with a spouse praying for another spouse, even if it is just to win a football game.

But as we’ve seen lately with Jason Pierre-Paul, Justin Tuck, Osi Umenyiora and a Giants defense that will pressure Brady intensely to get him out of his rhythm, Giselle’s prayers, in this case, might not be enough.

Tom Brady is in Gisele's prayers

Y'all just needed another media vehicle to continue the 'public prayer' debate now that Tebow's sitting at home, didn't you?

Seriously, as a NYer I have never respected the NY Post...because this is the kind fringe ethics they apply to their journalism. A "disgustingly sappy email?" Well we're all reading the email now so where's the sap? Where's the incessantly lovesick appraisal of Tom? Where's the phallic references? How desparate were you guys to create a story that you committed invasion of privacy, and then proceeded to grossly inflate this email to insanely and tremendously untrue exxagerations.

I've said it before, I'll say it again. Invasion of privacy is only cool for investigative journalism. Like WATERGATE would be a legitimate story to commit invasion of privacy for, not a supermodel's email to fam and friends which may or may not have been to lovey dovey for social acceptability. The NY Post is a glorified TMZ. You know the slimeball who reported this is just biting his fist, wishing Gisele would send a mass-email asking people to pray for him.

Tom Brady is in Gisele's prayers

So Brady's smokin'-hot wife is behind him, physically, sexually, mentally, and obviously spiritually...and the the NY Post thinks that sappy? Can you say JEALOUSY? Every straight man in the world would kill for that devotion from Gisele or any other underwear model. Good for him! Oh, and amen...

Tom Brady is in Gisele's....  Is that what he calls it "her prayers"?

Actually, i thought it was a very nice private note to her friends and family. Too bad one of them had to rat her out to the NY Post, just so they could feel important.
